Termites and other wood destroying organisms are very common throughout the United States. Even though in most cases termite and wood destroying organism inspections go beyond the accepted standards of practice and defined scope of a home inspection, some clients who are buying a home would prefer (and in many cases expect) their home inspector to at least perform a cursory inspection on those home components. Repairing and mitigating the damage caused by termites or other wood destroying organisms can be an expensive proposition.
